In June 2010, a friend and our two daughters cycled up the Suffolk and Norfolk coasts. I made the books to remember this special time together – Two mothers and two daughters – old friends.
Two mothers, two daughters
Long legs, easy conversation
Following the little bikes
Pointing the way
Following the edge of sea and land
The Suffolk and Norfolk coasts
Across on the ferry
Early June – bright sun, blue sky
Cool breezes, deep hedge shade
Wild roses, red campion
Clotted hawthorn confetti the lanes
Almond scented gorse
The scent of beanfields
Cool stone of an old church
White sails between green reed fields.
